Mackie today announces a complete modernization of its popular Big Knob Monitor Controller, expanding the lineup and including models with high-resolution USB recording and playback. The all-new Big Knob Series features three models – Big Knob Passive, Big Knob Studio and Big Knob Studio+.
Now with three products in the Big Knob lineup, studios of any size will benefit from the professional source/monitor selection and precise level control that made the original such a popular choice. Plus, with the addition of high-resolution Onyx™ USB recording and playback, studios get a powerful, hybrid solution that is truly greater than the sum of its parts. Both the Big Knob Studio and Big Knob Studio+ offer high-resolution USB interfacing, featuring dual Onyx mic preamps, delivering an ultra-wide 60dB of gain range and award-winning sound quality. For the affordably-priced Big Knob Studio, having such a high-quality interface on board truly creates an amazing solution for users building their first studio.
The Mackie Big Knob Series is debuting at the 2017 Winter NAMM Show with worldwide availability beginning April 2017 at Front End Audio. Big Knob Passive has a U.S. MSRP of $89.99, Big Knob Studio has a U.S. MSRP of $259.99 and Big Knob Studio+ has a U.S. MSRP of $389.99. Sale price will be announced shortly.
